Howell’s alumna Chloe Smith wins GDST Alumna of the Year Trailblazer Award

We are absolutely delighted to share with you that Chloe Smith from Howell’s Class of 2013 has won this year’s GDST Alumna of the Year Trailblazer Award. The Trailblazer Award recognises the incredible achievements of a GDST alumna in the early stages of her career. Chloe, who is the co-founder of the Bigmoose Coffee Co, a registered charity and coffee shop which has been expressly set up to mentor, train and employ vulnerable people in Cardiff, is a deserved winner of this prestigious award.

The winner of the main award is Louisa Blake (Birkenhead High School Academy) who is the founder of Looby Lou’s Lovely Lunches, a social initiative that began when she realised many students in primary schools across the Wirral were going hungry during the school holidays. Louisa noticed the behaviour of some pupils changed before holidays, facing the uncertainty of not having a regular meal each day.

Dame Rosemary Squire (Nottingham Girls’ High School), British commercial theatre owner, entrepreneur and philanthropist was the recipient of the GDST’s Exceptional Contribution award.
